Have you enjoyed the Love! Valour! Compassion! that was the Democratic National Convention?
Donald Trump didn’t.
Despite the riveting nature of any given political conference, and without regard to the Big League guests and goings-on this week…and in the face of the DNC’s promises to right America’s wrongs…to the President, the thing was a real downer.
Donald made such clear speaking Friday at the 2020 Council for National Policy meeting.
To hear the Commander-in-Chief tell it, rather than now-official nominee Joe Biden noting America’s “greatness,” he sees “American darkness.”
That might put him in the same camp as Andrew Cuomo:

Biden’s a fan of the mayor:

In his remarks to the Council, Trump dressed down Joe:
“Joe Biden grimly declared a season of American darkness, but look at what we’ve accomplished, until the plague came in, and look, we’re doing it again.”
The President summed up the Party of the Donkey’s whole week:
“Four straight days attacking America, as a racist, horrible country that must be redeemed.”
He called it the “darkest, gloomiest” convention.
“They want to punish America and its citizens, instead of holding them high. Where Joe Biden sees American darkness, I see American greatness.”
As relayed by The Daily Wire, the Leader of the Free World said Dems are unfit for leadership because they tear down the country.
But, he believes, some people back east are big fans:
“China very much wants Joe Biden to win,” the president said before noting that Biden “end fracking, end petroleum products, no natural gas, no nothing, and that’s it.”
As for the light/dark metaphor, apparently, the feeling’s mutual. Here’s how Biden explained he’d save the world from our present Trumpian nightmare:
“I give you my word: If you entrust me with the presidency, I will draw on the best of us, not the worst. I’ll be an ally of the light, not the darkness. Love is more powerful than hate, hope is more powerful than fear and light is more powerful than dark — this is our moment, this is our mission.”
Joe colored himself a crusader in a cape:
“May history be able to say that the end of this chapter of American darkness began here, tonight as love and hope and light join in the battle for the soul of the nation — and this is a battle we will win and we’ll do it together.”
Is that where the party is, or are they still calling these “peaceful protestors”:

Or is this the kind of “love” Joe’s talking about:

I only ask in order to make a suggestion: If the Democrats want the American vote, they’d do well to denounce the goings-on in the streets — the violence is, indeed, a darkness.
But they don’t seem to be doing that. At least, in my view, not substantially enough for the average…Joe.
The President appears to perhaps believe his opponent’s beholden to ’em, as well as other far-Left components:
“Joe Biden is a puppet of the radical left movement that seeks to destroy the American way of life.”
“Joe Biden has pledged to hike your taxes by $4 trillion in the largest tax hike in history. And they’re going to waste the money on the Green New Deal, the Green New Deal. You know what you get out of that? Nothing. Nothing except debt and death.”
One thing’s for sure: Perhaps more than ever before, three months before an election, we’re looking at two very different Americas where the candidates’ visions are concerned. And if I had to guess, I’d say that trend is gonna continue. Another four years, and the divide will be even greater.
And as great as America is, that potential furthering away from unity is indeed an unmistakable darkness.
